Take a trip down memory lane with our fabulous photographic celebration of East Anglian life through the decades. Today we take a nostalgic look back at the market town of North Walsham, situated in North Norfolk.
Life in North Walsham has always revolved around its market place - from community events and celebrations to the hustle bustle of the weekly market. It even had its own cinema. The first in King's Arms Street was open from 1912 until 1931, before being replaced by a new cinema in New Road, which continued entertaining audiences until the 1970s. The iconic St Nicholas church in the centre of town remains a dramatic sight.
When its tower was completed in around 1450, it was the second tallest building in Norfolk - however, in 1724, it suffered a partial collapse and the spire and bells came down. Further structural collapses through the centuries have left it as it stands today.
